Went for lunch today to try the new menu. It had a lot of interesting food that all sounded sooo good. I had The Bomb sandwich. That is a perfect name it was truly the bomb, it had egg salad and pastrami. My husband had the Peking chicken and asparagus fries which were amazing. My son had fish and chips and he liked those. OH yeah started with the Man Candy, you can't go wrong with spicy/sweet bacon.
"nightowl" is obviously pitching a band which is probably friends with "nightowl" and using this review forum to get them on MTV?! Nah! Nobody could be that lame.

Very unprofessional staff. No respect for local acts, even though they "want to build the local scene." I've never actually been screamed at by a representative of a venue, and I've played about 90% of the venues in the Springs. I warn any act going in there to expect to be treated poorly, but I hope you have a better experience when/if you play. Timbo, the main sound guy is a pure gentleman, but the rest of the crew is pretty negative.
Sound isn't terrible, but the tin roof and concrete floors really color it. Lights aren't terrible either, they have moving heads, but they project a screen saver on the back of the stage that seems pretty corny. I'm sure you can request that off though. Stage is white, not a fan of that.
All in all, I wouldn't recommend anyone to play a show here. In fact, I would say try to get the show moved to the Black Sheep or Loft or somewhere else.
awesome bud awesome staff.
This is a great clinic. The staff is amazing and friendly, really know their stuff, affordable prices and they have great hash!! The weed is just as great as the clini
40 Thieves is a solid, spacious, and comfortable hookah lounge. Out of all the hookah joints that I've visited here in Colorado Springs, this one is by far well lit while keeping the smoking ambiance. They card here too, so that is definitely respectable. The prices aren't too bad and neither is the service. In an area where there isn't much to do in the evenings, I'd definitely come back to 40 thieves to kick it with my buddies.
Super fun hole-in-the-wall place. Very West-Side. The food was delicious and the staff was curteous. Everything on time and done right.
My one and only dispensary i town. They have a hige variety of bud,concentrstes and so much more for patients. The shelves are never empty and the quality is PIKES PEAK HIGH. The the staff there is amazing and i wana give a specail thanks to PETE and BRANDY man they been there for me from the get go . HIGHLY RECOMENDED FOR NEW RED CARD HOLDERS and THOSE WHO HAVENT STOPPED BY YET I INSIST YOU STOP IN . And if your looking for a great cargiver these guys got you taken care of.
JP Wellness is the best! I agree with you 100% santiago211! Besides having the best bud in the Springs and patient attention, they have over 40 strains in stock, plus they recently brought in several new strains. They have a huge selection of 'strain specific' oil plus shatter-wax, bubble hash and great medibles. A good selection of accessories too. You will never be disappointed with JP Wellness.
i would love to give my 2 cents on Jp wellness first of all there pot is not normal its better than that they have so many strains to choose from and on top of that you get a free eighth right now if you change care givers also it don't matter how much money you have they will take great care of you in my opinion they are #1 in colorado springs
because the owner and staff really do care for us we are not just customers to theme we are family i always feel very welcome when i go there also there Friday dollar joints are the best and there house is wow but you really got to try there caviar OMG
so in my book Jp Wellness is # 1,
Thanks for the heads up Brad...
Had to wait over an hour for food and they only brought 2 of 6 dishes. Musician was singing right next to us and too loud. No breadsticks. Miserable to wait for food and then to not have it all come out. The woman in the kitchen was yelling at her staff. This place should be on Kitchen Nightmares. Just choose wisely and go somewhere else. THIS PLACE IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME!
Great Food and Friendly staff. My family of 5 will be regular customers! We had the sliders,Veggie wrap and triple pork sliders and a hot dog. All was fresh and tasty!
How rare...I have been eating at the Blue Star since it opened and have always had a first rate experience on every level.
The Blue Star and Marigold's are the two best places to eat in the City...just considerably better than any similarly priced places.
Importantly, the volume is high enough that the foot is always fresh...I am actually pretty stunned by the bad review. Maybe the hubby is allergic to sea bass.
My husband and I had been to blue star a handful of times since moving to the springs about a year ago. Friends of ours had talked it up and we really had seen nothing like it in Colorado Springs.
We were excited to bring my inlaws there when they came to visit for the first time. Everything seemed as usual when we first arrived, we had a table in the lounge area.
Things started going down hill when we got the appetizers. The cheese and meat plate only had one triangle of cheese and was nothing like I remember it being the last time we had ordered it. When one of our several waitresses (sounds nice until they repeat themselves and it becomes unorganized) came to clear our appetizer plates she rubbed the edge of a messy plate against my brother in laws sleeve leaving a sticky mess. We brushed that off pretty quickly though, especially after putting club soda on the spot...
Next thing I know my mother in law is sitting with her main course (salmon) in front of her and she's not touching it, I look at it and there are hairs under the salmon on her plate. When she told the waitress, the waitress offered to get her a new dinner and she comped the meal, but it just wasn't right that after the second mishap from the staff we didn't get a visit from the manager or any kind of sincere apology.
Worst part is next.... My husband woke up with TERRIBLE food poisoning the next day. He had the sea bass and no one else tried his dish. It was a violent case making for a not so great trip for his family. My husband was cooped up in our hotel in Denver all day Saturday and missed an excellent dinner in Boulder.
We are very disappointed in what a scam we fell for, this restaurant poses to be fine dining when really they are unorganized, unsanitary and unprofessional. We will not to recommending this restaurant to anyone in the future and will stay far away from it ourselves!
HI, I LIVE IN MEXICO, BUT I TRAVEL TO COLORADO FRECUELTLY I WOULD LIKE WATCH ITEMS LIST WHICH YOU HAVE ON SALE FOR CHOSE AND BUY WHEN I GO TO COLORADO, THANK YOU SO MUCH ,
This place is awful! Awful food, service, and the prices are way to high in comparision to the food portions. I ordered the fried catfish and shrimp I got half a piece of soggy catfish and six shrimp that were extremely overcooked. My fiance ordered the boudin link w/ french fries his food was cold The waiter had an attitude when my fiance told him his link was cold The waiter took the link back to the kitchen then emerged back to our table 15 minutes later with the same old link. I asked the waiter did hush puppies come with my meal he shrugged his shoulders then came back to our table with a small bowl full of cold hush puppies by this time we were so over the whole nawlins experience and asked to speak with a manager. We were told there wasn't a manager and there was no one we could speak with concerning the poor service we received, really! We were laughed at by the staff and treated as though we'd done something wrong. Bottom line I will NEVER patrionize this establishment again!
But the place is disorganized...
Eggs Benedict Tuscan style. Delicious!
I am trying to get rid of a grow and flower room ...this is turn key. set up and ready to roll. You dismantle. where can i advertise it. will take 1/2 of what it's worth.
